There is a reason that boat was a champion. That boat was awesome. Great video.

That was some of the best running I've seen back then out of a 41....Hats off too those who would run like that.

THIS, is when offshore racing was the "REAL" offshore racing. Not like now, it's tamed down alot. I'd rather watch my old offshore movies from the 80's and early 90's than the stuff that's on now a days.

What does a 2006 Bayliner and an 41 foot race Apache have in common?


They both top out at the same speed!


Better check to see what boats led the pack at Smoke on the Water last month before you say has benn.

Thanks Peter - If it were not for loyal customers like you, it never would have happened ! - As to the reason Ben did not finish the race - they had pushed the outdrive Plates and Gimbals almost thu the transome - It was a race all right - and Ben was there to win - !

Hope you are well Peter - and your feet too after the accident in Florida - T3x has the library if you ever need anything replaced.

Be well good friend -
